We have a little garden on our balcony thanks to mother! and we already have strawberries growing but they don't have much time to hang out because as soon as my 2 year old sees one, he picks it quickly and shoves it into his mouth!.. clever little kid. I got a photo of this one before i even let him on the balcony... this one is gone too.
For one of the gifts my husband recieved for his birthday was Sailing Lessons. I folded up the certifcate into the shape of a sailboat, then blopped his head onto a sailer in photoshop! I thought this was such a cute way to present sailing lessons!
I have been in a creative wave making different necklaces that i am really excited about. The toughest part for me is giving a title to these necklaces. The ones i come up with never seem to properly give them the excitement and flair i think they deserve. So in a quiet moment, it dawned on me to name them after incredible gardens i have been inspired by and visited. This piece is the start of that and Parc Monceau is the perfect description of this piece in my opinion! All of my pieces are inspired by gardens so naming them after famous parks and gardens seems like the perfect fit. I am now excited to do research on all the famous gardens of the world!
Ok, I can be so lame in keeping up with my blog! First of all, i was in Nashville, TN on business a few weeks ago (who am I kidding... it's now a month ago) where i had the pleasure to sneak in a private art class with Cindy Wunsch! http://www.cindywunsch.com/. Not only does she have a personality that could light up the sky, she is a great teacher and i learn several cool and different techniques. I highly recommend checking our her artwork too. Here is what i did, which is obviously completely inspired by Cindy!
